Finally Friday: Crossbody Clutch

Halogen Saffiano Leather Crossbody Clutch Crossbody purses are hot right now, and they can be great for moms used to toting around MUCH larger bags, because you can keep your personal items in there (e.g., money, lipstick, phone), then grab it and go if you don’t need the larger bag. I like this highly rated Halogen crossbody clutch; readers at Corporette have also been singing the praises of Lo & Sons’ new Pearl crossbody. The Halogen clutch is $68, and available in 8 colors.

Everyone Thursday: Stone Collar Necklace

Sequin Stone Collar Necklace | CorporetteMomsGorgeous! I always like a big necklace for maternity/nursing (takes the focus off your chest!), and I’ve found they can be a really easy way to add some polish to a simple outfit (even if you have to put the necklace on when you get to work because your kiddos grab at it when you’re at home).  This one looks awesome — the green stones, the depth and movement in the agate… love it all.  The necklace is available in green, blue, pink and white at Nordstrom for $118.

Washable Wednesday: Straight Leg Trousers

NYDJ Stretch Straight Leg TrousersLadies, what are your favorite brands for washable trousers? I always used to like the Gap washable trousers, but online the reviews suggest that they’re really hit or miss of late. These NYDJ stretch trousers are very highly rated, but mostly by older women — but then that is their demographic (NYDJ does stand for “not your daughter’s jeans,” after all). They’re $120, and were available in three colors but are sold out in everything except the black, which I take as a good sign. They’re available in regular sizes 0-14, and petite sizes 00P-18P.

Feeding Tuesday: GoGo Squeez Applesauce Pouches

applesauce pouchesI’m always amazed at how much those little pouches cost for babies and kids — some of the fancier ones are almost $2 per pouch. I buy these GoGoSqueez pouches in bulk on Amazon, though, and the price comes down to $20.40 for a pack of 48 with Subscribe & Save (or $.42 cents per pouch). When I’ve done the math in the past, they even come out less expensive than the big jar of organic applesauce we get on Fresh Direct.  Hooray! GoGo Squeez appleapple, Applesauce on the Go

Maternity Monday: Slash Neck Skater Dress with Belt

ASOS Maternity Slash Neck Skater Dress with Belt | CorporetteI’ve long admired this simple maternity dress from ASOS — it looks grown up and flattering, but fun and versatile. And the fact that it’s $53.06 doesn’t hurt. The black seems to be sold out right now, but it’s still available in this light blue/orange belt combo, as well as a rust orange/cobalt belt combo. It’s $53.06. ASOS Maternity Slash Neck Skater Dress with Belt

(Actually: it comes in a lot of colors, as well as different sleeve styles, some marked as low as $17.  Nice!)

Finally Friday: Penny Boot

Sam Edelman PennyI was intrigued to find these Sam Edelman boots in Zappos best sellers list. Among heavy hitting perennial favorites like Hunters, Uggs, and Sam Edelman’s very popular short Petty boot, these tall, flat boots are new to me. (There’s also a wide calf version!) The lining looks soft and warm, and I believe the Zappos video lady’s words were “squishy bottom,” which sounds good to me (at least in the shoe context). The boots are $150, and available in black and brown, sizes 5-10. Sam Edelman Penny

Psst: It looks like Zappos has limited sizes — note that Nordstrom has sizes 4-13, as well as a darker brown color.
